We visit here every Friday and the food is always excellent and service is brilliant. Highly recommend the set menu which we have for two people but also feeds our four year old too. They also have an excellent Chablis on the wine list.

There were eight of us and we decided to go for the set menu at £15.90 to keep the money simple. A good selection of starters very well presented on a large platter. The crispy duck must have been the highlight of the evening because there was so much of it. I think everyone had at least three rolls. The... More

I have been a few times and I have to say that I will never go again. The service is good but the food is not edible. I have no idea what meat is being served but its definitely not chicken! I think the food inspector needs to visit this kitchen to investigate what food they have here because I... More

A lovely floating chinese restuarant, on the river Nene. Have been twice recently, once when they were not busy and the food was superb, again when they were, when the meal was distinctly average. You pays your money and takes your chance. Cannot recommend as to unpredictable.

Having not visited the restaurant for almost 20 years, we thought we'd give it a go, I'm.so glad that we did. The food was fabulous and good value and the staff were really helpful and friendly. Would we go again? Most definitely! Would we recommend this to others? Yes, and we already have.

Visited on a Friday evening. Establishment is very good and well decorated in the Chinese style. Service is excellent. Nice little touches like finger bowls and crackers. Food is OK but I have tasted better. What makes this place worth visiting is the VFM a set meal for under £16 which includes mixed appetisers. Crispy duck. 4 main meals and... More
